THESE DAYS DEVOTIONAL
 
 


Reflecting the biblical story of the widow and her mite, everyone is offered an opportunity to give to the glory of God and support of the church through small and large projects. 
This project encourages the young who might make $1.75 selling lemonade on a street corner to those who are under employed and unable to give to undertake projects that generate a monetary gift that can be given to the church and provide the giver with a sense of worth and investment in the ministry and mission of the church. 
 
LEAST COINS - In the back of the sanctuary is a large jug into which you can place your change and coins of all denominations.  Proceeds at the end of the year are used for local mission projects.
